Bin collections over festive period

First published in News by

BIN collection days will change over the festive holiday period, as there will be no collections taking place on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

New waste and recycling collection calendars showing the collection days over the festive period were sent out in October to every household in Wiltshire. But anyone who has lost their calendar can check their collection dates online at or by calling the council on 0300 456 0102.

Garden waste collections will be suspended between December 24 and January 7. Real Christmas trees can be left alongside garden waste bins for collection from January 8 and will be collected until the end of January only.

Alternatively people can recycle Christmas trees at household recycling centres.

The recycling centres will be closed from 1pm on Christmas Eve, and all day Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. At all other times the centres are open during normal winter opening hours. More information is available at

Bins should go out by 7am on the scheduled collection day and all waste should be in the bin with the lid closed.
